The work to create this database, which now contains almost 4 million pieces of data, has taken our team of volunteers 6 years. Led by our Losses Archivist, and volunteer, Dave Gilbert, the team have cross referenced the data with innumerable sources including the Chorley Volumes, national and international Rolls of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Squadron Association records, and PoW records. A full list of our information sources can be found here
The database now contains almost 4 million individual pieces of information and will help you discover the story behind each loss. The work on the database continues apace, with the aim of providing the most complete source of information on all aspects of their short lives. Our mantra is to paint a picture of the man (or woman) and not just the serviceman.
